Book Review-A Dashing Duke for Emily: A Historical Regency Romance Novel-Hannah Hamilton

Monday, September 9, 2019

Back in the time that this novel takes place women were supposed to be wives and have children and not much else. Emily Dunn happened to have a father that believed his three daughters should form a musical trio--which they did. Only Emily was really any good and truly wanted a solo practice and to become famous. But a trio they were to remain according to her father and none would gainsay him.

Then one fateful evening when the trio was playing Mark Linfield took an interest in her and wanted to help her further her career. So did his uncle. The uncle did not really have Emily's best interests at heart as you will find when you read this novel.

It took a lot of planning and plotting to get her father to allow her to go solo---meanwhile she became fast friends with Mark's sister and made the acquaintance of all others in his ducal household.

Will they ultimately get Emily started on a European tour? Will Emily and Mark finally realize that they were made for each other?

This is a true Regency Romance novel happy ending and all and I loved it!!

A daring choice between career and love that will seal her fate forever…

Emily Dunn is the star pianist in her musical family. She is surprised when Mark Linfield, the handsome and powerful Duke of Edgerton, and his Uncle Silas invite her and her sisters to supper together.

Both Mark and his uncle are smitten with the elegant, statuesque Emily, and the Duke, a patron of the arts, suggests he would like to help launch her career as a solo pianist throughout Europe.

Silas wants to help Emily too, but only if she will agree to accept his advances toward her. And not only must she contend with Silas, but there are forces within her own family that want to prevent her from achieving her dream.

Despite these difficulties Mark and Emily, are becoming intensely attracted to each other. But Emily has a beau, and Mark's family wants him to marry a woman of his social class.

Neither one is certain how to deal with these challenges by themselves. But might they succeed together, or will they be overpowered by the forces working against them?
